A GLASS-ENCLOSED DECK–WHAT USED TO BE called a winter garden–is a feature of these apartments that most residents scarcely use, Jensen exploited its eccentric shape with a fluffy Mongolian rug by Patterson, Flynn & Martin that evokes tossing waves and a ribbed Falls + Company wall-covering that mimics the rain frequently coursing down the windows. Wood-framed chairs and stools have been re-covered in midnight-blue Bergamo silk, and the space has become the owners’ favorite hangout. The small kitchen area nearby is accented with a Tai Ping carpet and bar stools by Jim Zivic.

In contrast to these vibrant ensembles, the bedroom is a sybaritic oasis of calm. The wall-to-wall plush bronze Patterson, Flynn & Martin carpet plays off metalic and silk wall-coverings by Falls + Company and Donghia. Hawley crafted Jensen’s design for a platform bed and side cabinets in his own carpentry workshop, using black walnut that his father–a commercial architect–had acquired. Ralph Hughes’s abstract Don Quixote hangs over the bed, and Unici lighting globes cast an irregular shadow across the walls at night, “I wanted everything in the apartment to have movement and a life of its own,” says Jensen. “Each element should have a unique voice but sing together harmoniously.”
